The Disturbing REAL STORY Behind Disney's Hercules

The messed up origins of Hercules. Subscribe to our channel: https://goo.gl/cv6b96 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Many of us know the Disney movie, “Hercules” as a feel-good story about a hunky Greek God. In the film, Hercules was turned into a demigod by the nefarious Hades. He had to perform several acts of heroism in order to reinstate his God status and return to Olympus with his parents, Zeus and Hera. Luckily he still had his superhuman strength. But things got complicated when he fell in love with Megara and sacrificed himself to save her. Because of his selfless heroic act, his God status was returned and he was allowed to return to Olympus. But he decided to stay with his mortal true love instead. Aw, so sweet! But that’s not how the real story goes. The Disney film is a pretty big departure from the way Greek mythology tells the story of Hercules. Ancient tales describe his journey as one of revenge, savagery, and madness. Here’s the disturbing real story behind Disney’s “Hercules.” ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheThingscom/ ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.thethings.com/

it's a myth, not a legend, so as far as I'm concerned nobody's "right" in this since it's a make-belief story.

Yo you guys are idiots that picture on the thumbnail isn’t Hercules it’s Saint Michael stabbing Lucifer smh

Hercules didn't fight the lion with a club. The lion was known for having indestructible pelt, so Hercules strangled him to kill him. He afterwards wore his head and pelt as armor, as it is indestructible (the movie even hinted that once, They really had some attention to detail in my opinion)

So many ppl crying about Disney changing the story Yea I am a mythology geek too, but Disney needs to change stories to make the appropriate for children You'd be surprised how much they changed the Alladin story, they pretty much took a few characters and made a new story, it has almost nothing to do with the original Also Atlas isnt holding the world

Atlas doesn’t hold the world he holds the heavens from the earth ie the sky.

He needed to complete 12 tasks, he did 14 but failed 2, and the king was his brother because zeus said the one who would be born first would be the king so hera gave another child birth first with that woman, his name was eurystheus

Yeah, spoilers, Zeus is infamous for never keeping it in his pants, if it breathed, he likely got laid with it. Hell, I'm probably sure he started going after inanimate things after getting bored with the living.

There is nothing more beneficial, physically, mentally and spiritually for mother and infant baby, toddler young child then breastmilk! The body does not break down or absorb any type of nutrition until it is body temperature! Breastmilk is always body temperature. Another reason is so beneficial is the infant newborn just spent nine months or so inside the mother's womb! It is quite cozy warm in there, the baby is surrounded by mothers body temperature plus its own developing body temperature. So by breast-feeding you are allowing the infant baby to still get some of the mothers body temperature by being pressed up closely to the body! This helps the infant, baby, newborn to adjust and adapt very effectively from being inside the mothers womb to being on the outside. Another benefit is the mother has spent most of her life fighting off the common cold, which gives her a advanced immune system, that took quite a few years to accomplish so the infant ,baby can get that advanced immune system in the very first moments of life another, benefit when a woman breast feeds her body than produces an enzyme that helps keep cancer cells dormant specifically breast cancer cells. A fun fact I had learned five or six years ago, when a woman gets pregnant and breast-feeds for one year, her body releases 100,000 pheromone' a woman that does not get pregnant or breast feed would have to live 100 years to release the same amount of pheromone. The list of benefits is complex however if you stick to the fundamentals of life will experience all those benefits, subconsciously, conscious, coherently, physically ,mentally, spiritually and systematically in the most efficient way that is possible. With all the benefits! You would think Trump would support women's right to breast feed ,130 countries just signed an agreement that is going to encourage women to breast-feed. Unfortunately Trump is threatening a country in South America, I believe Peru. To not sign on or something to that effect.

if your relationships is not going to validate confirm signify being true to love honor and the creation of life. You're basically in the experimental stages. Equally as important if you are not living up to the pleasure potential responsibility of femininity and masculinity you don't know yourself. For no one can express or receive love in its entirety if they do not know themselves. If you don't know your body's capabilities and limitations for having neglected to fully engage with all your body senses to their extreme limits in the most efficient way that is possible. Laugh smile grin chuckle Slipping gripping fingertip polling twisting nibbling biting caressing in grounding pounding your way in to eternal paradise would be a feeble attempt at best. Similar to life not being free everyone's soul and spirit is paying out for the choices that are made personally and professionally case closed. Seriously if life is not free why the hell would you believe death is any cheaper. Live for the moment and it is gone and a instant. Heterosexual race gender religion " whether you believe you are, lesbian gay sexual preference is secondary to the fact if those actions are leading to physical mental spiritual progress. In layman's terms if your sexual conquests are not stimulating you in too becoming a more productive person then we don't need to know about it you probably would be better off not participating in those type of activitys. until you are physically fit mentally sound spiritually balanced living up to the pleasure potential responsibility of femininity and masculinity.
Why is your thumbnail showing the "Archangel Michael" on the real side not Hercules?

Hercules died from a poisoned cloak a centaur gave to his wife . the centaur kidnapped his second wife and hercules shot him woth an arrow saving her. The centaur said to the woman to take hus blood and make him a cloak from it, because it would make him madly in love wothe her. The blood was poisoned and hercules wore the cloak it became one with his flesh . when he tried to take it off we would rip off his flesh as well . thats how he died eventually. The gods pitted him and took him to olympus. Thats how i know it.

For some reason Hercules real story sounds more like a person whose father cheated on his wife. Whom as a result was not accepted by his stepmother and not accepted into their household. As a result Hercules grew up with a lot of issues with anger problems whom blamed his stepmother for all of his problems. In one of his fits of rage he ended up killing his wife and children. Out of fear of the consequences he fled. Eventually he was rightfully imprisoned and forced to do manuel labour and/or forced to fight as a gladiator. He hated the king for that. Even in prison he ran into trouble and killed a bunch of his fellow inmates/gladiators. He was then forced into duty when the country ended up in war with a neighbouring country where he stole a bunch of loot. But he needed to allow the king (his overlord) the pick. And he got what was left over. In the end he died and rested in so-called peace.

+Konstantin Korovilas and you know this how? Have you met Hercules? Did you exist when his tale was formed? It's and interpretation like any other. And i feel mine makes more sense then the mythical nonsense. At least if the tale is routed in reality and not just created. Just Like Maria was definitely not a virgin when she gave birth to Jesus.

This ending is not true at all... Hercules married Deianira. Deianira was abducted by a Centaur named Nessos and when Hercules shot him with poisonous arrows, Nessos told Deianira just before he died that Hercules would never really love her unless she got Nessose's coat and give it to Hercules to put it on... Little did she know that the coat was filled with the Poison from Nessose's wounds. When she gave it to Hercules he wore it and died from the poison too..

O MY GOD IF YOU WANT TO MAKE A VIDEO ABOUT HERACLES LIFE, MAKE SURE TO KNOW THE HOLE STORY BECAUSE I AM GREEK AND I WAS TAUGHT THE STORY IN SCHOOL SO PLEASE, THE STORY YOU PRESENT IS HALF FALSE, SO GO READ AN ACCURATE SITE, AND NOT THE PERCY JACKSON BOOK. JUST AN ACCURATE SITE. Sorry about the ''yelling'' but the video wasn't accurate, something annoying for me, and reading the comments made things worst. Oh and I think Heracles died in the end, but i cannot remember it very well. here is the real story : https://www.ancient.eu/article/733/the-life-of-hercules-in-myth--legend/

There was another live movie of Hercules that said a lot of what was shown in stories like these were big exaggerations.  The movie said that Herc was a big strong guy and a great fighter, but not a demigod, he was strong just not super strong. They also showed that other characters weren't exactly like in the stories either.  The centaurs were just guys riding big horses, Cerberus was just 3 big wolves instead of a 3 headed dog and the hydra was a group of men wearing snake masks instead of the big monster serpent.  The movie said that there was a person who recorded what Hercules did and spiced it up big time to make it sound better.

Ok, its a myth. We have different theories about it because it didnt actually happen. Iknow i know, you'd be ranting about it. Lets just get the main concept about it. 1. Hercules was hated by Hera so he did something to Hercules to make him go bonkers and murdered his wife and Children. 2. He did the 12 Labours and became a God in the end.
